I will NEVER use this company again – I am telling all my friends, neighbors and associates about my awful experience and want to alert people I don’t know! This company is incompetent in every way – from quoting; to loading; to delivering; to reassembling. They excel at tripling the price quoted; damaging furniture; not reassembling the furniture and getting lost for 1 hr on a 30 minute ride. Experts they are not!

I only wish I read these reviews prior to hiring Father & Son of Newark NJ / New York to move into a 5 room apt - 3 of which are bedrooms. Everything you read in the prior posts happened to me too!! The job cost more than double then the price quoted, my furniture was held hostage,,,,I helped load and had 3 more people come to assist with the unload!! Sal / Sandy are very personable and give you the distinct impression they are stand-up, honest folks - this couldn't be further from the truth!!! Sandy arrived with her arm in a sling - stating her adult son knocked her down - for all I know this is part of the scam. Damage - lots and lots of damage from my grandmother's table, to my mother's secretary, my grill - to a lamp!! The only things that weren't damage were the things I packed myself!!! The movers didn't have tools and I was charged the 1 hr it took me to locate the tools they needed!!! I can't say this enough - avoid Father & Son!!! Check out this consumer affairs link if you have any doubt - consumeraffairs(dot_com)/movers/father_and_son.htm If you use this outlaw, I mean outfit --- don't say I didn't warn you!!!!

Scully's is a great place for Newark. Many of the commuters and workers that work in places like Prudential and the surrounding businesses ...

An F+!! They turn the heat off too early and even worse, turn the heat on too late. October 1st the heat was suppose to be turned on and 22 days later, it still isn't on. I'm convinced that i spent 5 days in the hospital b/c of these lazy bastards. Management is completely inaccessible and the Livingston Homes maintenance superintendent is worse. He was suppose to turn on my heat but instead, he checked the temperatures of my rooms, gave me a line of bull and then left. I'm a dialysis patient and i need the heat on when it is suppose to be on. Two days later and still no heat. Today, i'm calling code enforcement again and then, i'm calling my lawyer. An utter disgrace!!

My mother had this company move her yesterday. I had no idea who she hired she said she had used them before. Half way through the day I recieved a phone call from my Mom almost in tears that they would not take her furniture off the truck until she pay them for an additional 6 hours. They threatened to take her furniture to there warehouse. My mother not knowing any better and fully under distress went to the bank and paid them cash. They quickly removed the furniture damaged walls floors and the furniture. Left everything in the living room didnt even put it back in the rooms the were supposed to. So they now finished early and didnt refund any of the extra money. I ask that you please dont use this company move it yourself if you have to or pay some friends to help. TELL ANYONE YOU KNOW THAT MAY BE MOVING TO AT ALL COST DO NOT USE THE FATHERAND SON MOVING FROM NEWARK,NJ

NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. Upon arriving, they demanded that a portion of the money be paid, which was fine. Once they left and arrived at the home the furniture is going to, they demanded the rest BEFORE any of the furniture was moved out of their truck. Also fine. However, the rest of the money demanded, combined with what was already given, significantly differed from the quoted price. As a matter of fact, the final price more than DOUBLED! The movers refused to do anything until the money was paid and even threatened to take the furniture back to their warehouse. After sitting in their truck for two hours and a phone call to the police, we caved and gave them the money. Here are my issues with this: 1. The woman who came to the house to give the quote, after seeing what had to be moved, said that the quote would only differ by 'give or take a few'; it DOUBLED. 2. When trying to contact the company, they hung up on us and wouldn't take our calls. 3. The movers said they just started working for the company, the company said the movers had been working for them for years. 4. They moved one piece of furniture from a room and continued on to another room before finishing the room they started. 5. They taped drawers to dressers instead of removing them. 6. The company charged us for packing tape but used packing tape that we already had/owned. 7. If they charge on an hourly basis, how can they determine how much to charge until AFTER the job is completed?! 8. They began at 8 a.m., it is now 8:35 p.m. and they are not finished. They moved two bedroom sets and a kitchen set, not an entire house. 9. I want to warn future clients of this company with this story. In a time like the one we are going through, every cent counts. To be cheated and lied to for that much money just is not right. If we never see a refund, fine. But, I want people out there to know about what this company did. Father and Son moving company is a scam!

Please avoid this company at all costs. They broke my TV and furniture. You call to discuss, they put legal immediately and on the defensive immediately. They know they do bad business. These people are absolute scammers, they take advantage of you at your most vulnerable moment. STAY AWAY! FAR, FAR AWAY!
